Rosemary Mint Lip Exfoliator

Chapped lips are one of winter’s annoying companions, and one that usually has me applying this minty lip balm multiple times a day.
However, I decided to start using a lip exfoliator (in addition to lip balm).
Unlike lip balm alone, which will only smooth your lips temporarily, a lip exfoliator will improve circulation on your lips, get rid of dry skin, and in the long run, smooth your lips so that they’re a perfect canvas for bright lipstick.
I made one at home, adding rosemary and mint for a refreshing, wintry touch, and loved how simple and useful it was.

4. Transfer lip exfoliator to a tight, airproof cosmetics container and store in the fridge. To use, massage a small amount onto your lips using circular motions for a minute. Then, rinse off the residue and seal your lips with balm.
